Do you use any large diameter heavy cutters successfully?

Quite frankly I don’t use my shaper at all. I bought it to round out my woodworking machine collection but I only used it a couple of times. I use routers for the job. The shaper sits forlornly in a corner of the shop taking up space. These things are pretty much dinosaurs supplanted by routers these days. I occasionally think about using the motor for something else but never have. It works well though. The cutters are more expensive than router cutters which is a drawback. I guess they have their uses in a production situation, however for a home shop routers are the way to go.
